For nurses who wish to excel in research and scholarly activities …

It is estimated, that of the nearly 2.7 million registered nurses licensed in the United States today, fewer than 10 percent have an advanced degree. Fewer than one percent of nurses have a doctoral degree.

You have the opportunity to contribute to the profession of nursing as a scientist and scholar during an exciting time in the history of the profession, and a time of great need for your expertise.

Nurses provide care and services to improve the health of individuals and populations. The PhD program in the College of Nursing supports this goal by preparing nurse scientists who can advance the knowledge base for nursing practice through research and scholarly activities.
